$29.00 Price per piece, three available

Stylistically related to Durgin's well-received "Fairfax," "Colfax" was introduced some twelve years later and also established itself as a highly regarded pattern.

The backsides of the two designs mirror each other, while the front of "Colfax" adds an egg and dart margin and delicate central embellishment.

This example is a 6 1/8" long, weighty, 1.2 T. oz., individual salad fork. An early piece, it is stamped with the Durgin "D" on the reverse, along with the word "Sterling."

It is in choice estate condition, and without a monogram or removal. There is no evident polishing wear, the tines are straight and even, free of bends or burrs, and the finish has a high luster.
